Just Add Ink #297 - Colour combo

I've seen this beautiful bloom from the Something New stamp set all over the internet lately and I couldn't wait to ink it up when I received it a few weeks ago. Although I must say it did take me a little while before I inked it up as there are so many beautiful creations out there and I wasn't sure I could create anything nearly as nice.

The colour combo challenge at Just Add Ink this week was a good jumping off point to get started - the colours are Pool Party, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.

It's been so hot and humid in Brisbane this week so it was so nice to sit in the air conditioning and create this!!!

I white embossed the outline of the flower and that really helped with the colouring! You might remember Rochelle did the same thing a few weeks ago in her JAI blog hop project here

I used my Copic markers to colour it in so the pinks and greens aren't and exact match but they are as close as I could get to the colour challenge colours.

I took some inspiration from a card with a similar layout to this while I was browsing pinterest but I forgot to pin it {silly me!}

Here's the colour combo and you can check out the other Design Team projects on the Just Add Ink blog.

I really hope to see what you create with this colour combo so don't forget to link up here.

I'm just starting to come down with cold so I don't think I'll be doing any crafting over the next week :(  Does anyone else find their mojo disappears when they are sick?


  1. Oh this is just stunning Trish! I love, love, love the softness to your colouring and the layout you've used sets this flower off perfectly!

  2. Absolutely stunning card Trish! I adore your soft colouring and the effect of the white embossing and how your diagonal layout allows the flower to shine - which is now going on my next order - I've tried to resist it...xx
